A perfect introduction to Hobart full of highlights and hidden treasures. Learn about the fascinating Indigenous and colonial history through fun, informative tales. Walk the streets of Salamanca and Battery Point, local galleries and villages, and get orientated on this personalised urban experience.
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:
Be picked up from your hotel at 10 am by your expert Localing host for a morning exploring Hobart on foot, getting acquainted with the city through the eyes of a well-informed and connected local host.
Wander the historic backstreets and waterfront area of Salamanca and Battery Point, passing through local markets (on market days). Learn about the city’s humble beginnings and fascinating convict heritage as well as its rapid rise and recent acclaim as a major culinary and cultural destination.
Stop in for a pastry and coffee in one of our favourite local bakeries. Chat with local makers about Hobart’s emergent dining scene and the recent journey from conservatism to creativity.
Stop for a great local lunch at a cool café in North Hobart or one of the city’s more elegant restaurants.
Spend the afternoon exploring some of the city’s vibrant local neighbourhoods like North or West Hobart. Visit a historic local brewer or world-class distillery, eclectic, independent shops and fine food stores.
For those seeking the ultimate birds-eye view, a trip up Kunanyi/Mt. Wellington is an excellent spot to finish up.
Return to your hotel between 2 and 3 pm or have your host leave you at a lovely waterfront spot for local cheese and wine.
